These RPG Tools can Help you Simplify Application Development. Have a Look!
Report Program Generator (or RPG) is a high-end programming language used by businesses to develop commercial applications and have many more uses. This is IBM’s proprietary programming language, and most versions of it can only be accessed on IBMi or OS/400-based systems.
Even today, RPG is a prevalent programming language on the IBM AS400 iSeries operating system. RPG IV (also known as ILE RPG) is the latest version of RPG and is a tool that provides a competent programming environment for IBM AS400 RPG programmers.
AS400 RPG Programmer
IBM iSeries programmers (or AS400 RPG programmers) are specially trained professionals to use RPG programming language and solve problems. AS400 application development companies typically hire RPG programmers to create code that can be integrated into business processes to ensure a high level of performance.
A RPG programmer can perform a variety of tasks, from creating new code to ensuring proper maintenance of existing software code (although existing code may look slightly different inversions of RPG code). If you are considering hiring an RPG programmer, connect with Integrative Systems. As the RPG developers from Integrative can help you with:
- Analyze, design, develop and maintain IBM AS400 iSeries written in various languages, including RPG, RPG ILE, RPG-free, and SQL.
- Create technical documentation and develop pseudo code.
- Either create new RPG codes or augment existing ones.
- It can also troubleshoot your business process to diagnose the problems.
- Debug any existing software to identify and fix the problem
- Apply new code to existing programs and fix bugs.
RPG Development Tools
Nitro AutoCode automatically generates client and server-side source code, which you can run directly without modification or further customization and optimization.
- For highly customizable applications, use Nitro AutoCode to create the base automatically, then edit the source code with RPG Editor on the server-side.
Nitro Source Editor
Edit your UI source code and manage IFS files. This tool provides everything you need in one place:
- Create, copy, paste, delete, and move IFS files and folders.
- Easily transfer files between your computer and IBMi or edit compatible source files directly over IFS.
These modules connect your RPG application to efficiently perform various powerful tasks:
These include actions to work with an integrated file system:
- Opening a file.
- Closing a file.
- Deleting a file.
- Determining whether a file path is valid.
- Reading data.
- Writing data.
It includes routines for retrieving posts/variables from the browser to be used to populate the variables, arrays, and data structures of RPG applications.
This includes a number of actions for browser displays to convert RPG arrays, variables, data structures, and SQL statements to properly formatted JSON. Output can also be IFS files, XML spreadsheets, or comma-separated files.
It includes a complete set of procedures for formatting RPG program data into simple and complex JSON strings to return to the browser.
Provides functionality that allows the RPG program to handle arrays in JSON objects.
It serves as a built-in front-end for more complex Java setups needed to create and send emails, which greatly simplifies the task for RPG programmers.
These primarily include actions for internal use in vvMail and vvPDF: launch a new set of Java objects, clear all Java objects, clear or release resources for Java objects.
It uses the Java PDF library with proprietary to make it easy to create PDF documents directly from your RPGs.
Determines whether the user is authorized for a particular app or a member of a specific group and whether the session is currently logged in or not.
